Nintendo Offers 20 Free Games With New 3DS Purchase

It was just last week when Nintendo revealed a price cut for its 3DS portable gaming device. Many believed that the price cut was due to poor sales since the 3DS received many complaints, ranging from eye strain, headaches, and other things like the LCD screen getting scratched against the cover.

Anyways, I guess the company didn’t think that the massive price cut would be enough, so now they’re giving you 20 free games along with your purchase.

Nintendo Takes 40% Off 3DS Price Tag

Nintendo is already going down the success slope because of poor sales of its recently released 3D gaming console, Nintendo 3DS. This has put Nintendo in some serious trouble. In order to manage the company so that it doesn’t become bankrupt, Nintendo is forced to cut the price of its gaming console in two of the major regions of its availability.

Nintendo 3DS was initially sold for 25000 yen in Japan and for $249-99 in US. It seems that in order to cover the manufacturing costs, Nintendo has reduced the price of their console by as much as 40%. The same console which was sold for 25000 yen would now be available for 15000 yen in Japan and for approximately $150 in US.

Amazon Puts A Halt To Nintendo 3DS Shipments

It looks like Amazon is taking user reviews and consumer comments very seriously in that it has decided to stop selling the Nintendo 3DS. The real reason why Amazon decided to stop shipping its 3DS portables remains a mystery, but they claim that they are working to fix it.

When the game console first came out, there were many complaints about the structure of the unit, claiming that the screen would easily get scratched due to not having enough of a cushion when it was closed.

Nintendo 3DS Gamers Enjoy Netflix Streaming

Nintendo 3DS owners will soon be able to enjoy the benefits of Netflix streaming on their portable gaming devices with a free app. With The 3DS’ 3D capabilities, Netflix offers the golden ticket to watching 3D content ‘on demand’.

Of course, you are limited to a somewhat small screen, but you’ll have an entertainment portal wherever you go. Getting tired of trying to beat the same boss level 5 times? Why not unwind with an awesome 3D movie to get your mind off it?

EA Games Announces Need For Speed: The Run

I’ve never been a fan of the Burnout series but have heard many gamers say it was good. I have, however, been a huge fan of the Need for Speed series. While the NFS series has fluctuated in quality from game to game, it is still a series I would always give time to evaluate. I wasn’t much of a fan of the Need For Speed: Underground series. My two personal favorite games of the series were Hot Pursuit 2 (the PS2 original and the 2010 remake) and Most Wanted. Those two games brought the best cars, the best action, the best cop chases, and the coolest maps out of the entire series.

The New Toshiba Dynabook With Glasses-Free 3D Technology

If you’ve been craving something new in a laptop, look no more. The latest Dynabook has just been revealed, and it looks more promising than ever. The T851/D8CR is a full featurered notebook with a 15.6-inch Full HD laptop and offeres Super View 3D Glasses-Free technology with a face tracking system.

What does this all mean? The laptop can produce both 2D and 3D images simultaneously, without the need for goofy looking glasses. Yes, I am a little surprised too after all the complaints with the Nintendo 3DS but being that this device does not generate 3D view at all times, I think users will not have too hard of a time to adapt.

Nintendo 3DS Makes Gamers Feel Sick, Literally

Thousands of Nintendo 3DS users have reported side-effects such as dizziness, nausea, and headaches after playing with their 3DS players. Some of the users are outraged after finding out that they were ineligible for a refund which retails for about $250. The 3DS was launched just ten days ago. The Nintendo 3DS works by using a device called a parallax barrier, which is the second LCD screen that sits over the main panel, consisting of a layer of precision slits. These precision slits allow each eye to see a different set of pixels, creating three dimensional depth. It is intended to work with the user sitting in a fixed point in front of the image, but not from an angle.

Nintendo 3DS Gets “Black Screen Of Death”

With the launching of the Nintendo 3DS, there came a number of users who encountered a fatal error message. Unfortunately the fatal error message is spontaneous, so there are not steps one can do to try to avoid the crash, such as turning a setting on or off. Currently there are only a minority of players experiencing this problem and some are hoping that Nintendo will be able to release a patch to fix it. Some users mentioned…
